So, a hole shot sounds like it is right out of a golf tournament (for all I know, it could be!). But, it’s not. In car-speak, a hole shot is when a drag racer beats his competitor right when the race begins. Basically, that’s when both racers are coming out of the hole. The driver that gets a hole shot most likely has a ‘lead-foot’ the size of an elephant, or just has a faster reaction time. I like the former. . .The winner pulls a hole shot, and the loser is holed.
There you go! VROOOM!

What if the guy with the Hole Shot Bangs the Blower after he has already Deep Staged?
Bang the blower: an explosion inside the supercharger caused by a flame from the combustion process accidentally re-entering the supercharger, where fuel and air are present. Generally caused by a stuck or broken intake valve that normally would be closed during the combustion sequence.
Deep stage: to roll a few inches farther into the beams after staging, which causes the pre-stage lights to go out. In that position, a driver is closer to the finish line but dangerously close to a foul start.
Your Unc How is such a show off! I would check his facts. You know Uncle Howie and the “truth”.
Yeah, yeah, I know all too well. . .
